The “Remojar Series” essentially explores the concept of de-contextualization. Figurative forming and re-forming of organic materials,seaweed, serves as a simple metaphor for the ontological narrative of matter in general and the human condition in particular. Exposure to the element water allows for softening, manipulation and molding while the air hardens, this process, first in commercial large scale plants and then later by my hands eventually weakens it return the the matter back to dust or algae.

“Invitacion” was a time based collaboration with the viewer. Needles were set on a shelf, the viewer could choose to puncture the bags of water. Few people actually did this, sufficient water dripped to return the hand and foot molds back to a pile of algae on the floor.
